Goodbye, Chloe

We’ve cared for Chloe for almost 12 years now, and today we had to make the sudden and sad decision to let her go! Over the last few days she spent more time away in a quiet room rather than with us, then stopped eating, and by this morning couldn’t even drink her water … some consolation at least that the change was so rapid and hopefully her suffering wasn’t too awful.

Here’s memories of better days …


Oakland Nature Preserve

Getting to be a frequent destination – limited choices while travel remains unavailable, and the search for not-busy places is the main criterion! So, some more views of the beautiful boardwalk down to Lake Apopka, including a small Alligator and a Great Egret …

Here also is a short video of the Great Egret very patiently approaching a small snack!
